Title: weed 2019
Post by: Ernie Lazenby on December 19, 2018, 07:25:39 PM
No the government has not legalised weed smoking, yet ::)!  Its the green menace in our pond that's going to need some attention I will be taking a look in the first week of January to see what needs doing and get at it the following week. (depending upon the weather of course)
Volunteers will be needed, usual caveat- only volunteer if you are physically fit to do it and at your own risk. Protective gloves are available.

A reminder-  Wednesday 2nd January. We will be getting the boat out and having a look at what needs attention and we will be doing some weeding. Don't forget it can be dirty work.

The overnight temperature and indeed the daytime temperature is such we can rule out any weeding on Wednesday 30th January.
 I have obtained a supply of blue dye and will apply it in March if and when the temperature is high enough for it to disperse. My annual blueberry look.

Suddenly its gone? the snow and ice of course. Not exactly the beast from the east more like a mouse from the north! If the lakes defrosted on Wednesday, maybe a big if, we will be doing some weeding.  Any volunteers welcome.

As we found out last Wednesday the lake decided to stay frozen up but as quickly as cabinet ministers come and go the lake defrosted by Sunday. Weather forecast for Wednesday is okay so we will try again to remove some weed.
